During a morning appearance on Fox News Sunday, Rep. Michele Bachmann spoke about Friday's marriage equality victory, saying the state of New York was within its right to legalize gay marriage. "Under the Tenth Amendment," she said, "the states have the right to set the laws that they want to set."

She also stated that federal officials have the right to put forth a constitutional amendment overturning the decisions made in individual states, and said she would support a federal amendment that defined marriage as "between a man and woman."

"Federal law will trump state law on this issue," she said.

She also stated that her support for states' rights as well as a federal amendment overturning those rights was "entirely consistent."
